Full description
San Francisco is a city of excitement, and what better way to experience it than from the air on a traditional seaplane. The San Francisco Golden Gate Seaplane Tour is a very popular flight, and you'll soon discover why.

You can choose to meet your tour at the Seaplane Base in Mill Valley, or book a roundtrip shuttle service from Fisherman's Wharf. Either way, you'll take off from the waters of the San Francisco Bay.

You'll soon be high above this gorgeous city of tall buildings, steep hills and trolly cars. Cruise around and directly over the Golden Gate Bride, making sure you can snap some stunning pictures to amaze your friends.

During the flight, you will also fly over Fisherman's Wharf, where you can look down on the chic and cool restaurants and shops below. You'll also fly over Angel Island and Alcatraz, before heading over the picturesque towns of Tiburon, Belvedere and Sausalito. Finally, land back on the water and taxi up to the dock in Sausalito.
